A Wheatly native has been killed in Syria.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 32-year-old John Robert Gallagher, who was fighting the Islamic State group in Syria has been killed in a suicide attack.
A posting on his Facebook page by his mother Valerie says that “I have heard from representatives from the YPG in Syria and in London and it seems that John Robert was killed by a suicide bomber earlier today. I don’t have many details at this time.”
She goes onto say that this was such an important fight for John and he has always been a man of principle, who believed very strongly in human rights and justice.
